One large goal of this project is to completely restore and reposition the two-car garage in the rear of the property
One of the larger goals of this remodeling project will be to completely restore and ultimately reposition the two-car garage in the rear of the property. The current garage has peeling paint, an unstable foundation, and rotting walls. In addition, as seen in the photos, it sits right on the property line of the adjacent house.
This portion of the remodel will involve pouring a new foundation, and shifting the entire structure 2-feet away from the property line. However, in order to have the garage in that position, Spillane needed to obtain a variance from the city allowing the structure to be less than 5-feet from the property line. Had this appeal not been granted, he would have needed to find a new way to handle the garage renovation.
